Hanging the Alexander Arrangement of Elements
Forever Periodic Table

Hanging is fairly simple,
spacerand completely adjustable.


Make two small vee-notches in bottom edge of the model under Group 2, one by the intersection and another a half inch to the left.
spacer
Make another vee-notch in bottom edge of the d-block under the center of Group 4.

Make a loop at each end of about 12' of dental floss or other light, less visible line.
spacer
This will result in approximately 20" clearance above the model.
spacer
To reduce that by 3", use a foot less.
spacer
To increase that by 3", allow a foot more line.

Hook a large paperclip or other hook of your choice in the loops at both ends of the line.
spacer
Bring one end from the bottom up through the f-block and the other up through the d-block.
spacer
Grasp the middle of the line and bring up through the s- & p-block section at the intersection and place another paperclip there &endash; leaving the line run loose.
spacer
Lift the model by the three paperclips together.
spacer
Guide the line from the d-block through the notch there and to the notch at the s-block nearest the intersection.
spacer
Guide the line from the f-block through the other notch under the s-block.

Level or tilt as you wish by tapping under a corner you want to raise, either now or after hanging.
spacer
When tapping, do not permit line to come out of the notches.
spacer
If all three paperclips are hung from the same place there will be some rotation, with breeze.
spacer
If a fixed position is desired, hang one of the hooks from a different location.

Hanging with a base attached is a little trickier. What? You didn't know about the base? Look there.
